Is it just me, or is this pretty freaky looking for a baby who is 2 days old?



He has more hair on his back than I have on my chest. It reminds me of an old song by one of the guys who was on Rawhide (and also in High Noon):

When I was born the folks around they did despair
Cause I was born with all my teeth and long black hair
They couldn't decide what to name me Percy Bruce or Kent
So they just called me the Carroll County Accident

I asked my wife, but she just gave me her "Mia" look - the one with the rolled eyes. Then she quoted Mia: "THFFFTTTTT!!" I need to keep Mia and my wife separated...

How do you know he/she has hair on their back?
Looks like my oldest did as a new born except her black hair was curly.
What REALLY looks weird is when they start shedding.
Usually first the back of the head, then the top and then the sides.
This is a beautiful baby.

Just DO it and be happy that you can!

I've seen his back. I wanted to know who kidnapped the baby and left a monkey in his place. Do they make Furminators for babies?



My youngest and I have decided that we're calling him Hank, which is a nickname for Henry, which also has the nickname Harry :

Behind the Name: Meaning, Origin and History of the Name Hank

OK.....got to know is this YOUR baby?
If I were this babies Mom I would beat you up with a blue pom pom on a stick for calling him/her a monkey. Poor little Hank.

Just DO it and be happy that you can!

Grandchild. My grandkids probably are growing up with a somewhat warped idea of what a Grandfather is like...

Congratulations on the new Grandbaby. He really is a beautiful baby and don't worry about the hair on his back. It'll fall out pretty quick.
By the way if you don't want him I'll take him.

Just DO it and be happy that you can!

Dropping in by, my Grandson has gone home after a month of visiting, sure is quiet around here now.

I taught him the important things while he was here

Horses are good



Dogs are friendly





And family is important

Today was bittersweet in my grooming job. I've been grooming for the same polo guy for 4 years. He won his tournament and it is my last day grooming for him.

But, I'm stopping grooming because my work is more demanding and... I'm going to play myself!

I've been riding (dabbling at playing) this horse this summer thanks to the generosity of a woman who plays, and she and her husband offered to let me buy him.

We settled things today and I asked them to write a contract. Oh my gosh. He's just a dandy. I'm looking forward to playing, roping and riding this one for many years to come. Now I just need horse #2!
